    Default Eyepieces for Dob 10" F4.7



    Hello.

    I have a Dobson SkyWatcher 254/1200 Flex telescope. He came with Super Ploss eyepieces 10mm and 25mm, neutral filter.

    My question is what kind of eyepieces I could buy for my telescope model, so that I can make full use of its capabilities, but without getting a blurry image.
    I mention that I have astigmatism.

    Because I heard that the F 4.7 fast telescope is pretentious to the eyepieces, for 2 weeks I have been searching forums and I think I focused on the Exploratory eyepieces 62 ° and 68 °.

    My budget is 400 €.

    I appreciate a tip from a connoisseur.

    With thanks!

    The Explore Scientific eyepieces seem to be well liked, I have not used them before though.
    The low power widefield eyepieces will let you keep an object in view longer than a equivalent focal length with a smaller field of view so handy when starting out using a Newtonian.

    If I remember correctly a lot of people use the 30mm, 18mm, and 11mm
